Celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday on April 23

Once again, the University Libraries, along with the Department of English and the Center for Creative Writing in the Arts, are celebrating Shakespeare's birthday. Please join us on Friday, April 23 from 2:00-5:30 pm on the lawn in front of Jackson Library--right by the McIver statue. A dedicated group of students, faculty, and library staff will read aloud all of Shakespeare's 154 sonnets. And, when we finish, we will eat cake! Come in costume, stay for fabulous prizes, and enjoy the Bard's immortal words. If you would like to volunteer to read sonnets, please contact Kimberly Lutz at 256-8598 or Check out Irma Minerva's podcast for even more information.
